We believe in one holy God, the Creator of the universe and all that is in it. We also confess our rebellion against God in thought, word, and deed, in sins of omission and commission. The just penalty for our sins is eternal death, God’s wrath. But we also believe that Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life and gave Himself to die on the cross as our substitute. Three days later, Jesus rose from the grave, victorious over sin and death. Through faith in Christ, we are freely and graciously forgiven by God, justified in His sight and promised eternal life. God restores us to fellowship with Himself and each other and empowers us by His Spirit to live for His glory.
